Swedish Smack Festival

Join us for some great Swedish maritime celebrations with some beautiful scenery along the way exploring some of the islands and the great west coast of Sweden in gentler Inland seas.

Starting in Gothenburg – the largest port of the Nordic Countries you will join our crew in sailing Excelsior to join many other historic vessels in Lysekil for the festival on the Monday. No doubt stopping in Marstrand even for just a bit to take in its exceptional beauty. See our gallery here for some shots from our 2017 of this area.

After a night in Lysekil we will set sail in company down to Gullholmen in a friendly race, being able to adjust the course depending on the weather. We are so excited to be joining so many other Smacks who include:-

Swan (the Fifie from Lerwick)
Boy Leslie

Wednesday will be a chance to explore Gullholmen and an opportunity for the crews of all the vessels to meet and learn more about each other before we make our way slowly back to Lysekil taking our time to explore some more of the coast.
